Twin Cities’ ‘Movies in the Park’ Returns this Summer
Schedules for summer events are starting to be released and I'm excited! I'm excited for all the summer fun and also the warmer weather. One of the summer events that Minnesotans have come to love since the pandemic began is outdoor movies. And the 'Movies in the Park' series in the Twin Cities is back again this summer.
I haven't made it out to see an outdoor movie since they became all the rage in the past couple of years, but I've seen them everywhere! Sometimes there are family-friendly movies, other times it's a movie mostly just for adults and older kids, but there's usually a wide variety of movie options throughout the summer. If you haven't checked out an outdoor movie in the past couple of years, maybe this is our summer to go!
'Movies in the Park' is put together by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. Movies will play at different parks around the Minneapolis area throughout the summer. They'll be showing movies on a variety of days throughout the week, so there's bound to be at least one you can make the drive for.
If you're already in the Cities check out what they'll be playing that day. Or plan a whole day around the 'Movies in the Park'! That'd be a fun summer outing. Also, FYI, they have times listed but it'll kind of depend on when the sun sets. If the sun isn't down far enough you won't be able to see the movie well. Here's the schedule of movies for this summer:
